Lincoln defeats Chargers


WOOD RIVER JCT. — Chariho High never got within striking distance of previously winless Lincoln and lost the Division II crossover boys’ basketball game 50-43 Friday.

Chariho trailed 28-22 at halftime, but never made up ground in the second half en route to its sixth straight defeat.

“It was pretty much a 10- point game for most of the second half,” Chariho coach Corey Downey said. “They were just a little better than us tonight.

“We missed some layups and we didn’t shoot very well from the free throw line, and they obviously made their free throws.”

Chariho was just 3-12 (25 percent) from the charity stripe while Lincoln was 14-19 (73.6 percent).

Lincoln improved to 1-5 overall and 1-4 in Division II-North. The Lions had previously lost to both Division II-South teams they played — 62-44 to Prout and 71-49 to Narragansett.

Robbie Toth led Chariho in both points and rebounds. He scored 14 and grabbed eight boards.

Toth is also the season leader for the Chargers in both points and rebounds. The 6-foot-5 senior forward averages 11.7 points and 11.3 rebounds per contest.

Chariho lost to Lincoln 40-39 in the two teams’ only meeting of 2012-13.

The Lions were 6-12 in Division II-North in 2012-13 and were second to last in that four-team division.

Lincoln’s Alec Cronan led all scorers with 15 points and Tyge Joyce added 14.

The Chargers visit North Providence Tuesday at 7 p.m. for their next game.
